1916 Easter Rising

A ceremony to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising has taken place outside the GPO in Dublin city centre.

The event on O'Connell Street was led by the President Michael D Higgins, An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and the Minister with Responsibility for Defence, Paul Kehoe.

 

At noon, the Tricolour on top of the GPO was lowered and the 1916 Proclamation was read by Captain Paul Conlin from the Defence Forces.

 

President Higgins then laid a wreath, to commemorate those who died and a minute's silence was held.

The event finished with a fly past by the Air Corps.
